MOSCOW (UPD- Premier Ni

Germany today of trying to in

, United States and the Soviet Un
ion, "endangering Die lives of mil
Eons of people."
Khrushchev made his charge in
a letter to West German Chan
cellor Konrad Adenauer. It was
In reply to a communication of
protest from Adenauer following
the shooting last Aug. 17 of Peter
Fechter, 18, an East German
youth who bled to death along
the Berlin Wall in a futile attempt
- to escape to the west.
' Adenauer had urged Khrush
' chev to help stop such incidents.
In his reply, broadcast by Mos
cow Radio, Khrushchev blasted
' Adenauer for allegedly following
.war policy, called again for a
German peace treaty, and re
' newed charges that the West was
' guilty of espionage and sub
' version against East Germany.

"hardly jibes" with Khrushchev's
recent calls for better U.S. -Soviet
relations in the wake of the Cu
ban crisis. The Soviet press, ra
dio and television have been filled
with accusations of espionage by
U.S. Embassy personnel, a Brit
ish businessman, a West German
woman and at least one Russian
official. The Soviet government en
dorsed the spy charges against
the Americans Wednesday, and
the embassy and State De
partment promptly denied them.)
Speaking of the Cuban crisis,
Khrushchev told Adenauer:
"You tried to corner us so that
there would be no way out but
conflict. The Caribbean caused
only annoyance for you which you
expressed in a recent statement."
He odded that Adenauer had
"tried to cast a shadow" between
the United States and the Soviet
Union and had tried to hamper
a fruitful exchange of opinions.
Khrushchev pointed out that Ad
enauer had lived through two
world wars and asked: "Do you
sock a third world war?"
"If war is launched under your
initiative," Khrushchev said, "the
Federal German Republic will
burn out like a candle in t h e
first hours of war."
Khrushchev told Adenauer that
"By your policy of intensifying
tensions and prodding the world
to new conflicts, you are endan

world now realize that thermo

then pointed to recent calls for
peace by Pope John XXIII,
"I am a Communist and an
atheist," Khrushchev said, "and
naturally I carmot-share the phil
osophic views of the Roman Pope.
Supports Peace Call
"But I support and approve his
call for peace. You, on the other
hand, a zealous Catholic, who rec
ognizes tiie spiritual leadership of
the Roman Catholic Church,
should have, apparently, heeded
with particular attention to the
appeal of its head."
Khrushchev said it now was
more necessary than ever to work
He said West Germany had
"absolutely no rights in West Ber
lin." He added a German peace
treaty should be signed to nor
malize the situation there, liqui
date the outdated occupation re
gime, and put troops in the city
under a United Nations flag.
He said "no blackmail can stop"
an eventual peace settlement, and
said that officials of the Bonn gov
ernment who visit Berlin carry on
vicious and dangerous provoca
tions against the cause of peace
and the security of the neighbor
ing socialist countries."
